The Nobel, just like many other formerly prestigious awards, means nothing anymore. It's another form of political messaging and nothing more. To even think about giving the Nobel to such a cause is unbelievably inane. It defies all logic, unless, of course, you understand the point of such awards is no longer to identify immense, notable contributions to mankind but to grant legitimacy to politically favored individuals and organizations.

This is from an onion or babylon bee types of publication right? BLM - peaceful??? Fairly certain 1000's of small business owners would disagree, The families of officers doing their jobs would disagree, The millions of dollars in damage to peoples homes, property, and livlihoods disagree. You can have a noble cause, but the truth is, a movement will be defined by the actions taken in its name.

People want to tar and hold every Trump supporter responsible for the capital riot, then , by extension, every riot done at a BLM protest can and will be held to the same standard, and forever stain the movement. That is equality, welcome to it.

I would ask my conservatives friend here to show one case where known BLM members were shown be destructive.

MSG Stan Hutchison - you have got to be kidding right? You are going to blame all that shit on individuals false flagging the movement? in dozens of cities, all throughout the summer? Like I said above, you can have a noble cause, but no matter how you try to rationalize this, the World associates this with BLM, They are not seen as a "peaceful" movement for social change, Here in Europe, they are compared to the Yellow vests. If you watch what happened in chicago, you can literally see someone dropping frozen water bottles and other items to throw , and other people just picking it up and throwing it Officers, those were normal people in the crowd bending andd picking up items to throw, fireworks, frozen bottles and other shit - spare me the Bovine fecal matter MSG.

Addison, a violent movement does not need a centralized command structure, or have you not dealt with the likes of the Taliban, AL Queda or other insurgencies? Small de centralized cells, loosely united in a cause, creating havoc and destruction, communicating through social media, pamphlets, and other unorthodox means.

SSG Robert Perrotto The Taliban and AQ do actually have a hierarchy. AQ's fractured completely several years ago. But they have hierarchies.

SFC (Join to see) - Kelly, AQ was hybrid of the two, and they still exist, still have cells, and still carry out missions independent of each other. People are deliberately blinding themselves to the truth of BLM. Their message on paper is beautiful, their actions done in its name, the same as the proud boy's. Violence for political change, and I absolutely am calling bullshit that all of it was false flagged, is violence, Your front doesn't mean squat.

OK, folks, I googled "blm members identified at riots" and all I got was articles of the 6 January riot, disproving any BLM members were there with one exception.
Here is a pertinent article from the time:
